I am delighted to write this article, as it so well matches my shared enthusiasm for the burgeoning field of philosophy and psychiatry / psychology. In North America this cross-disciplinary field is led by the Association for the Advancement of Philosophy and Psychiatry (AAPP). What began almost 20 years ago as an organisation committed to philosophical inquiry into psychiatric issues - such as philosophical analyses of psychiatric concepts and categories - has developed into a body of scholars and clinicians who also bring psychiatry to bear on questions about canonical ideas in Western philosophy.
